Man Man Life Fantastic

In the Man Man Progress Report I described the sprawling elegance of the title track to their upcoming album Life Fantastic, and frontman Ryan Kattner mentioned the song’s “…40-second Steve Vai shredding guitar solo in a chaotic break down at the the climax.” “Life Fantastic” really does show off many of the strange bedfellows that make the album a big step forward for Man Man — the line inside the song about “chaos and beauty” could describe the song itself, as much as it applies to “Life Fantastic”’s morbid description of finding a corpse during a family picnic. Listen and download the song below:

  1. Excellent, I am looking forward to this one. The piano-groove reminds me a bit of Spoon’s “Written in Reverse.”

    Now I know that I’ve been listening to too much of the two Mister Heavenly tracks because I basically imagined hearing Nick Diamonds in there singing backup vocals on the chorus (the “Life… Fantastic…” part).

  2. Awesome tune. Thanks for giving us another sample of your musical magic.

  3. wow i love it!

  4. ah. gone is the ‘recorded in a room’ sound and the interesting clash of ideas that made Man Man so interesting. Thanks a lot, Mike Mogis. Thanks for drenching everything with a thick, sloppy coat of the “Bright Eyes Treatment”.

    • On behalf of Ryan Kattner and the Man Man gang,
      I truly am sorry Evan. Maybe I could stop by and pick up some tips on how to be as hip as you sometime? you know…..when you get a minute.
